Suspect in recent Montross thefts arrested

Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office is so sure they have the right man, they have cleared nine different recent cases of larceny in and around the Montross area.

Suspect Damonte X. Neslon, age 23, wasn’t too bright when Senior Deputy Darrel Johnson approached him after receiving a tip of suspicious behavior from a delivery person on the morning of Dec. 15.

Deputy Johnson approached Nelson, who was wearing a black hoodie, which was covering his head and most of his face. Upon approaching the suspect, Nelson handed over a stolen identification to Johnson. Besides being polar opposites in physical description, the identification Nelson used belonged to deceased Lieutenant Ron Hundley, formerly of the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputy Johnson immediately took Nelson into custody, and Nelson has been charged with a total of 11 felony charges.

Broken down, the charges are: six counts of petty larceny with two prior convictions, which makes them felony charges; four counts of grand larceny; and one count of possession of a firearm after being a convicted felon.

Nelson was taken to the Northern Neck Regional Jail, where he was held without bond until his first court appearance on Dec. 17, at the Westmoreland General District Court. The judge again granted no bond, so he will remain in the NNRJ until his trial.

Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at a residence where Nelson was residing in the 200 block of Templeman’s Road. The search warrant resulted in the following items being recovered; keys to a stolen 1995 Lincoln, wallets, cash, identification cards, credit cards, clothing, a stolen handgun and other miscellaneous items.

Although this suspect will remain behind bars for the holidays, Sheriff C.O. Balderson wants to remind folks to remove valuables from vehicles, securely lock vehicles and residences and to remain vigilant all times, not just through the holidays.
